FORT WALTON BEACH — The Board of County Commissioners has passed a resolution banning flavored tobacco after Students Working Against Tobacco proposed it Tuesday evening. Okaloosa County joins surrounding counties with such resolutions in place.

SWAT says it is Florida’s youth organization to “mobilize, educate and equip Florida youth to revolt against and de-glamorize smoking and move toward a tobacco-free future.”
